Hello,
Thank you for allowing me to assist you, my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you with your concern today.
12v low indicates the charging system is incorrect on voltage, this can mean a bad battery, connections/wiring/grounds/cables etc, or charging system not putting out the required voltage of around 14vdc while engine running. First test is starting the engine and a voltmeter set to dc voltage on the battery should read around 14vdc, below 13 indicates a problem, below 12.6 it will start to drain the battery. Check all above items including the ground cable at both ends, the cables themselves can also go bad and require replacement, water can get in the front cover and ruin the stator as well as it failing without that. Stator tests I can provide after the above checks.
Thank you!
